Re: Area of Interest - UPGRADED to "Potential Tropical Cyclone Two" 5pm Sunday

From the 5pm Discussion " The National Hurricane Center now has the option to issue advisories on disturbances that are not yet tropical cyclones, but which pose the threat of bringing tropical storm or hurricane conditions to land areas within 48 hours. Under previous policy this was not possible. These systems are known as Potential Tropical Cyclones in advisory products and are numbered from the same list as depressions."

Not sure why this is needed as opposed to Tropical Depression #2. Seems needlessly confusing if you ask me!
